Step 2: Study exemplary samples

Study SEVEN EXCLUSIVE LPAT past paper exam scripts (2014-2019) with comments so you understand what HKEAA expects. The writer of the passage scored LPAT level 4-5 for-his writing exam. One of the products (2018: e-learning) coincided with the one featured in the Examiners’ Report:


Step 3: Cram LPAT-level sentence patterns

With a few days left, you need urgently cram more advanced sentence patterns. Jazz up your writing with not just cleft sentences, inversion, parallelism, alternating short and long sentences. Get about 40 LPAT grammar and sentence pattern varieties- easy to remember and use (arranged using FUNNY ACRONYMS, e.g. TIG, RAP, ACE) to DRAMATICALLY spice up your language and make your sentences much more sophisticated and elaborate:


Step 4: Memorize a 9-step essay template

Study our 5-A4-page note that outlines the 9 essential steps (e.g. capture attention, state thesis, concession and rebuttal) to take in a well-structured an argumentative writing to achieve true coherence rather than gluing paragraphs together with connectives and conjunctions. Ample examples, useful expressions, vocab and grammar items to use provided in each of the 9 steps:

Step 5: Instant vocab power boost

Charge up your vocabulary without randomly dropping some obscure vocab items, by learning to replace commonly-used boring words with sophisticated, but natural ones, use different vocab strategies in writing, e.g. synonyms, meronyms, hyponyms, lexical cohesion, rule of three, native-like collocation related to education:

Premium exercised based on grammar items handpicked from the most important points in the past paper (contains explanation):


Step 4: Avoid common terminology mistake—prevent the preventable

You know something is wrong with the sentence but you don't know the terminology to label it. In 2017, for example, HKEAA comments that many candidates mistakenly labelled 'on' in 'cheer on' as a preposition rather than as an adverb or particle; some candidates mistook 'are' as an auxiliary verb instead of a copular verb, and could not name the -s as an affix. Over and over again, HKEAA tests the name of different kinds of pronouns (possessive, reflexive, reciprocal, relative, demonstrative, interrogative, etc.) yet the candidates still found this paper hard. Make you don’t fall into the trap:


Step 5: Remind yourself of university linguistics

Do you know this paper is not just about grammatical errors? That's why the paper is called 'errors/problems'. Every year, questions are set on meaning, discourse, pragmatics, etc. Don't underestimate the non-grammatical problem:

Content largely overlapped with 2020 past paper (inversion in negative sentences, and use of wh-words in noun clauses):

Reading and listening

When you do the past paper, do you realize that you always copy a bit too much, or bit too little, or miss the keywords so you can’t get the mark? Follow our systematic STEP BY STEP approach with explanations, examples, and practice in every step towards reading/listening success. Start with the step most suitable for your level:


Step 1: Understand what response a question requires

Identify what is relevant to the question, how not to copy excessively without discerning, and how not to miss key points from the answers


Step 2: Read/ listen beyond the sentence level

Understand the impact of word choice, understand how to answer questions like ‘What does the writer/ the character mean when he …?’, learn strategies to figure out connotative meaning:


Step 3: Read/listen beyond the literal level

Understand simile, metaphor, irony, etc.; and how conceptual metaphors are embedded in everyday language (e.g. you are 'wasting' my time -> time is money); learn how to answer questions which asks you to ‘explain’ ironies and implied metaphors:


Step 4: Read/listen across the lines

Understand the ‘trap’ related to referencing, substitution, ellipsis, etc. Understand that pronouns function as a noun phrase, and so your answer must be a noun/ gerund/ noun phrase/ noun clause, not a clause. Learn how not just pronouns, but also synonyms, paraphrases, metonyms, hyponyms, superordinate can also be used as referring phrases:


Step 5: Read/listen between the lines

Understand inferring, writers’ tone, connotation, implied meaning, etc. Understand how some grammatical constructions are used to show meaning:


Step 6: Download practical tips

Explore shorthand writing, visual organizers, practice videos, practical exam tips before and during recording, enhance comprehension and strategic listening, what you need to do when you are not sure of the spelling (not spelling it phonetically!):
